Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Volvo specialist

service • repair • sales

We are always happy to quote for any job required, and you’ll find our prices are generally 50% cheaper than main dealers.

“95 percent of our work is on Volvo cars, but we offer tyres, four wheel alignment or air conditioning repairs for all makes and models”

Started by Graham in 2006 after leaving a senior position at a Volvo main dealer group, Horton Cars has evolved from just sales to a full service, repair and sales facility at our twin unit site in Oakley specialising in Volvo cars.

Graham is assisted by Mags (Service Reception), Ivan (Senior Technician) Daniel and Paolo (Technicians), Charlie (Workshop Controller) and lastly but certainly not least Ralf and Nellie (Office Dogs).

There really isn’t much we don’t know about Volvo cars, our workshops are equipped with almost everything needed to maintain your Volvo to a high standard and keep you on the road.

Along with a friendly professional attitude, sensible pricing and a “can do” mentality to any issue, you’ll find we will always do what’s best for you and your Volvo.

Reception, car sales forecourt and customer waiting area

“Not only has Graham provided excellent and friendly service, he has saved me a great deal of money compared to the Volvo main dealer we previously used. He discusses the issues, the solutions and the cost alternatives clearly and in language I can understand. An excellent result all round. Thank you Graham.”
